We have a 7bbl similiar steam system and we have a 7hp high pressure steam boiler by parker boiler. We regulate the pressure before it enters the jackets and we get a constant PSI. What make is your brewhouse? I would contact the manu and ask what size boiler is needed.
for that size you would need at least 80 if not 100 kg steam per hour. Sorry I cant remember USA measurments
Pressure in the jackets are regulated after the steam exits the boiler. most steam jackets are rated for 1 bar or 1500psi.
Steam at higher pressure has a higher temp, therefore, you want to maximize the pressure and the amount to get the best heating
